Do some cell phone service providers allow callers to know when you've actually listened to their voice mail?

Sometimes I check my voicemail and don't return the call immediately. But many times, I'll get another call from that _same_ person right after I listened to the message. Do they know I just got the message, or is it pure coincidence? Can I block this from happening?

This was simply a coincidence. Phone companies do not have this capability, and sharing such information would be an illegal breach of privacy.

No one will know that you listened to their voice mail on your phone unless you tell them. This occurrence is purely coincidental.

I have sprint and i have been looking into other phone services. From what ive read and researched, there isnt any service out there that allows that type of feature. in my opinion, that would be a type of invasion of privacy and would have to monitor calls which is illeagal.

Cell phone providers do not let carriers known when their voice mail has been listened to . This is just pure coincidence believe me. There is no way of actually telling. If there was, many people would be disappointed and there would be great uproar. It is more of a privacy restraint.

Usually people are just calling back in case you couldn't get to the phone in time. There is no way to tell if a message has been listened to.

This has happened to me too, and it isn't necessarily right after the voicemail is made... this can be hours later, and yet that same person calls immediately after I check my voicemail.  add a comment
